3d Trees

Recommended Posts

I am placing trees in my 3d model but they are not showing up unless I switch back to 2d. Have spent about an hour on this now and pulling my hair out..

Any suggestions? Clearly I am being a fool and it is something really simple.

I'm not really a wiz at 3d VW.. Spent the last 2 yrs using 2d and then Sketchup..

which 3d trees are you using, vw symbols, or a 3d polygon type (vbvisual, sketch import, etc.)? if vw symbols, did you check to see if they have 3d associates?

are you using a dtm? did you "send to surface"?

...first things that comt to mind.

Thanks for your reply Ray.

I'm using the VW symbols.. Evergreen tree and Ornamental Tree. When I look at them in the plant settings / Definition window the 3d box shows grey. None of the options have anything but a grey box in the 3d preview window.

I've tried send to surface and still it only shows 2 upright grey rectangles crossed over each other..

Not sure what a dtm is I'm aftraid..

are you viewing the model in wireframe?

the vw tree symbols are not really 3d trees. they are 2d images applied as textures to the two rectangles that you see. the tree images only show in opengl or renderworks rendered images.

if you are aware of that and still not able to render the trees properly, post images or your file.
